Ilkley Half Marathon: Road closures & disruption to buses


Ilkley Half Marathon is taking place on Sunday, 11 July.


Roads on the route will be closed from 10am, the race will start at 10:30 once the whole route has been confirmed to be traffic free and marshals are in place.


Valley Drive and Bolling Road were reopened by 11am approx in 2019, organisers are hoping to have Ilkley cleared and open fully apart from Denton Road by midday as in 2019.


There is no event village at West Holmes Field, spectators are being encouraged to watch around the route and not congregate on the field.
